    Walkaround Lens for Europe trip

    Hi everyone, it's been a long time since I last posted on this forum and not sure how many from my days are still around, but I'm pretty sure the community's still great and an excellent source of advice, so here I am. Next year I'll be traveling to Europe and need to buy a walkaround lens for...

    Summertime

    Happy New Year everybody! Unfortunately, it's been quite a while since I last posted on TPF, and I don't even remember if I ever posted in the B&W Gallery, but for the last few days the idea of posting something kept coming to me. So, here I am sharing these pictures and looking forward for...

    Cat on a wall (Sepia)

    Hello harishankar! I don't really think it works in any processing. What is it you like about this picture? I really don't see what's special about it.

    Picture and signature for critique :)

    Hello! Does this picture work for you? Always had mixed feelings about it myself, so it would be nice to know what others think! Old Jewish Quarter by Lizard.King, on Flickr On the other hand, I've been wanting for a while to come up with a signature for the pictures. Not a watermark, but...

    Czech Rooftops

    Yes, I agree... Czech food was great! So many tasty things to eat at the central square right in front of Tyn Cathedral

    Czech Rooftops

    And so cheap, compared to the rest of Europe, at least.

    Jardins de Versailles

    Thanks! Actually the sign was what triggered the whole idea for the picture. About the saturation, I was doubtful and played for a little while trying to find the right balance. I think I like it this way :) I could leave it out of the frame or clone it out, but I kinda like it. However it's...

    Yeap, happens to me all the time too! You mean I should dial down the sky a little?

    Jardins de Versailles

    I always have troubles finding the right amount of saturation for a picture. Always tend to fall short or go way too far, but I felt with this one I somehow found the right amount, at least for my taste too. The idea was to make the Chateau look small to accentuate the gardens, but I'm afraid...

    Learning to use off-camera flash [C&C appreciated]

    Thanks! The only problem is that I cannot use a higher flash power than 1/8 because the SB-700 doesn't seems to be able to synch when using a higher power. I'm gonna buy a wire to connect them that way and (hopefully) solve the problem, until I decide to send it for repair. So, having that value...

    Speaking Of Rings

    Then focus manually and use a small aperture to have more DoF... Maybe you're getting confused with all the different lights. I'd start with just 1 and then add more but knowing in advance why I'm adding it and making sure it's helping the ring look better. I'd also use a black background if I...

    Jardins de Versailles

    Hello everybody! I'm looking at old photos to pick a few of them for the Facebook page I'm about to launch one of these days, and I keep finding images I like and had forgotten. In the distance you can see the Château de Versailles -- This has been photographed so many freaking times, that I...

    Learning to use off-camera flash [C&C appreciated]

    f/4.5 -- You're right, you can see that in the top. Next time I'll try a smaller aperture. Thanks!

    Learning to use off-camera flash [C&C appreciated]

    Yes, I was going for a soft light, thanks! I wanted to do both shots: one evenly lit and another with a darker bottom. But I think I like this one better. You're completely right and now I've learned. :) I basically wanted to sell you the product. I mean, as if it was an assignment from a...
